Comments: Two sporocarps present; pileus about 2.5 – 3 cm wide; tube layer very thin compared to context; flesh cheesy but tough when dry; SP none, spores taken directly from pore surface using a soft, moist brush. Spores apparently do not fit to expectations well. They seem to be too wide, but characteristic smell and typical hypha with short side branching (Ref.:(1)) make the determination almost certain.
